Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City
is an awesome place. Most of the residents are not Mormons -- there are a lot of non-Mormons here. I meet people every month who originally planned on being here for only a few days and end up extending their stay for several weeks.

Arches National Park was full of wonderful sights. The La Sal Mountains are gorgeous!! I love
and will come back there someday.
